Beyond Lewis and Clark: The Army Explores the West

This online exhibit addresses military explorers from Lewis and Clark (1804) to George Custer (1874). It is the result of a partnership between the Kansas State Historical Society (KSHS), the Virginia and Washington State historical societies, the U. S. Army's Frontier Army Museum at Leavenworth, and the U. S. Army Center of Military History.

Beyond Lewis & Clark: The Army Explores the West at the Virginia Historical Society, 428 North Boulevard. 

To commemorate the bicentennial of the Louisiana Purchase by President Thomas Jefferson and the subsequent Lewis and Clark expedition, the Virginia Historical Society will be the opening venue for this important exhibition, a collaborative effort with the Kansas and Washington State historical societies, the U.S. Army's Frontier Army Museum, and the U.S. Army Center of Military History.


The Lewis and Clark expedition inaugurated a half century of western exploration led by the US Army, in which Meriwether Lewis and William Clark served as captains. Other expeditions were led by such renowned figures as Zebulon Pike and John C. Fremont. Moreover, in the decades before the Civil War, the army was the federal government's "public works department."


It identified the basic network of trails, surveyed the western topography, and laid the groundwork for roads and railroads. As this exhibit will make clear, it is impossible to overstate the role of the army in this critical period of national development. 


The U.S. Army Engineer Museum has this mission:

Collecting, preserving, and interpreting

American military engineering material culture.


 ... Disaster assistance

for victims of hurricanes, floods, and earthquakes

continues as a peacetime challenge of the Corps. 


For more than 200 years, miners, sappers, pontoneers, topogs-engineers, have contributed to the development of this nation and of developing nations. In war, engineers have been fighters and builders of those things needed to sustain the battle. If the past is simply a prologue of the future, engineers must continue to hone their ability to build, and if necessary, fight.

During KUCE programs since 2006, I’ve analyzed Kansas Territory’s pervasive “elevation awareness deficiency” from over-reliance on cartography without ground-truthing topography. USNPS Trail of Tears map was is a prime counter-example.

Google Earth’s Brian McClendon grasped implication of this misperception (Fall-2006).
He quickly added a Google Maps “Terrain Tab” showing current digital elevation model contours.
Our Kansas Alliance of Wetlands & Streams (I-70E Chapter) advocated for state-wide DASC-KGS watershed boundary overlays to replicate our JoCoGov-AIMS prototypes for Clear Creek in Monticello Township (2004-06).

Be Aware or BEWARE of cumulative unintended consequences!
My attached fishbone diagram distills an ESP “thinkLet” I got while transiting
the South China Sea during in 1967 as OOD-UW aboard USS Cimarron (AO-22).
That UFO (Unidentified Floating Object) encounter inspire our crew to move CIM’s removable brass & bronze artifacts to Village of Cimarron, NM (1968-69). Yes, the “Santa Fe Trail Lives On” as EarthSea-Keeping/Midwest Mariner sea stories!

It became my retroactive St. Louis Council BSA (1959) Eagle Scout Leadership service project.

Management Trends?
I received an email the other day asking me to speculate on the future of management....... That’s an interesting question. I am sure most gurus out there have their bullet lists. Here are a few of my thoughts on the topic (these are just my pea brained thoughts and not at all scientific - just what I see and feel) via http://bit.ly/NAg69q
